CLARA analytics Introduces a Cutting-Edge AI-Based Toolkit to Improve Risk Management

Sponsored by Businesswire

(“CLARA”), the leading provider of artificial intelligence
(AI) technology in the commercial insurance industry, today announced an
advanced AI-based toolkit to assist risk managers in evaluating an
entire claim population’s performance, understanding the underlying
costs that affect a group of claims and predicting trends that could
have a negative impact in the future. The new Risk
Management Toolkit
is part of the CLARA
product, which utilizes AI to help adjusters better manage
claims in real time and identify at-risk claims before they escalate.

The Risk Management Toolkit is unique in that it leverages a variety of
machine learning and natural language processing techniques to analyze
both structured and unstructured data, such as observations mined from
claim notes, medical records, images and other documents. Incorporating
unstructured data into AI models results in more accurate and detailed
analysis that can inform decision-making and reduce the severity and
frequency of claims.

Risk managers can use the toolkit to conduct on-demand analysis that
identifies the factors driving claim complexity and attorney
involvement. They can also review the providers and attorneys that
affect costs within a group of claims to ascertain their macro impact
versus what happens in a single claim. Analysis is based on the
predicted complexity of claims and is case-mix adjusted to offer a more
precise and in-depth look than the average severity and frequency levels
commonly found today.

“Risk management has always been constrained — by time and by the types
of data that could be analyzed,” said Rohit Nair, product manager at
CLARA analytics. “We’re changing this today, supplementing traditional
trend analysis with AI and machine learning to pull out the gold nuggets
from claim portfolios that signal adverse trends. This new holistic view
empowers risk managers to efficiently address underlying costs.”

Because the new tool tracks trends over time, it is able to rapidly
identify potential high-severity claims. Machine learning-based alerts
are triggered when adverse trends occur so that claims teams can make
necessary adjustments. Users do not have to wait for alerts to get an
accurate read on what’s happening with a group of claims or to see the
big picture. They can easily create custom dashboard views with
extensive filters to generate reports to guide decisions based on
up-to-the-minute data.

CLARA analytics will showcase the Risk Management Toolkit in Booth 1304
, being held April 28-May 1 at the Boston Convention and
Exhibition Center. Additionally, CLARA analytics Founder and CEO Jayant
Lakshmikanthan will discuss the changes that AI brings to the insurance
industry in his session “Demystifying AI in Commercial Insurance,” on
Tuesday, April 30, at 3:00 p.m. in the Innovation Hub-Booth 1099.

The Risk Management Toolkit is available today as part of CLARA claims.
